Ever since I bought my new lens, I've been whining about how I've been too busy to go shooting. So I took BART to 24th and Mission with my friend Josh and walked back to the Castro with the intent of shooting and, possibly, buying cute shoes and tops. (I am a multitasker.) So I wandered down Valencia, bought nothing but a plastic ring (cute!) and two used books (deep!), and took a picture of this flower which is ... right in front of my house. There is a moral here, but I am going to go drink some root beer and read Madame Bovary instead.
